    World Affairs Council Is Islamic Liberalism Dead in Turkey? Turkey has long served as a gateway between East and West. Many Western governments count on Turkey to serve as a democratic ally in an unable region. President of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdogan and the AKP have been praised for creating a liberal Islamic government in the Middle East. More recently, however, the so-called Turkish model looks to be failing. Why did such a promising government model fail to inspire democratic regimes among Turkeys neighbors?

The Commerce Department says the national economy is still growing but albeit very slowly, thanks to an uptick in consumer spending and a boom in the housing market.
